Re: Introduce yourself here!

Hi -- I'm from Australia. Mostly my interests are in professional grade CRTs like PVMs etc, but I do have a Sega Astro City and I love arcade games.
Whenever I repair or modify electronics I have a habit of meticulously documenting it. I like to contribute to wikis and have done so on the arcadeotaku wiki already for the MS8-29FSG.

I'm hoping to get some help with my MS8-29FSG actually - if anyone happens to have the resistor value for R447 that would be most helpful and save me creating a new thread just to ask a single question 😳

Enjoyed shmups since playing Ikaruga on the dreamcast way back when.

Here mostly to check the price of some old games I have.

Hey there greetings from Mexico.

Not much to say about myself, a small time arcade enthusiast with a focus on shooting games. Very rarely post on shmups and the projects siTe, have the same handle in my social media.

Hope to learn a thing or two troubleshooting my monitors and PCBs, lots of seasoned experienced people here. Maybe sometime doing business with some of you too.

Nice to meet you guys!

Hi,

Thanks for accepting me on the forum. I'm mostly a console gamer and into CRT's, but one day I'll likely get into arcades, so thought I'd sign up here! :)

Hello, another Swedish arcade nut here. Getting back into the hobby now again after a ten year slump shocked how expensive everything is these days. Trying to get into board repairs and generally learning more about what makes these things tick this time around.

Hi everyone!
I'm from Germany.and one of the strangely very very few women who indulge in this hobby. I like maze games (LADY BUG, PENGO, AMIDAR) & shooters (BOSCONIAN GALAXIAN MOON PATROL etc) the most. :-)
Best regards!

Hello, you beautiful people !

Just discovered this forum a few weeks back, but have been in the Arcade hobby for the past 2 years.
Looking forward to learn new stuff and meeting some of you along the way.

I am a sucker for artsets, POPs, and pretty much everything design related to the arcade world.
Huge fan of Capcom Golden Age (everything pre-2000) because of that.

I own an Euro cab and a Japanese Candy cab (the best of both worlds)

Thank God, I am not a shmup gamer, this allowed me to start a samll (but meaningful) PCB collection
for the titles that rocked my world as a teenager in the 90's.

Hi everyone, big pleasure to meet you all.

I'm Tulo and I'm a game developer for old systems. Those who recognize me will know me for having founded (and then left) WaterMelon games, and relased Pier Solar for the Mega Drive/Dreamcast/Moden systems while in my tenure there.

After that I founded 2Dream which has released The Ghost Blade for Dreamcast and Ghost Blade HD for modern platforms.

I'm about to embark on a new game development that may involve developing for arcade boards. (I won't confirm or deny that fact) :lol:

I hope we can have great conversations!

Greetings, new here but have been lurking shmups forum and a few others for years.

Got into arcade collecting since 2004 and stopped around 2012, been on and off since then until present time.

Would love to own a candy cab someday :D

Hello,

I'm new here. I recently acquired a Blast City candy cab and I'm looking forward to installing a mistercade in it when the board is back in stock.
